Grief and loss inevitably leads to anger & sadness. Not surprisingly, it also can lead to depression and feelings of guilt. The latter is called irrational guilt, as most of us lack magical powers to cure dying people. Even if they mean the world to us. I would encourage my clients to express feeling of guilt and anger often unconscious related to the loss. The anger is often at the person who died. Of course, this is irrational anger in most cases, as we all are going to die. The anger is over losing someone we love, value. I would use clinical interventions that usher in the grieving process. This fosters coming to terms with and an acceptance of the loss.

Grief is about loss and the threat of loss. The stronger the bond between us and the person we have lost, the more we will hurt both physically and emotionally. When we are torn from a family member or friend, a part of us dies as well. Our natural need for attachment gets severed, often bringing the return of childhood fears. The world feels like a more dangerous place. As a result, we may feel out of control. We ache to have the loved person back. We know in the rational part of our minds that the person is not coming back, but it also seems impossible to let him go. We will remain emotionally conflicted until we can release our loved ones. Because letting go is so difficult, we must do it slow....

I provide superior counseling and therapy services for those who have experienced a traumatic loss in their life. This does not have to be just a loss or grief from death, but also of that of a relationship (per se through a break-up or divorce.) I enable the client to work at their own pace as far as recovery goes, and take it one session at a time. I allow them to grieve naturally, but also take the approach that will lead them to cope better with loss, through communication and other means- My goal will ultimately be to lead them to sanctuary and enable them to move forward with their life- while strategically allowing time to heal their wounds.

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

What does it mean to suffer a loss? In today’s economy, it might mean losing a long-time job or one’s home or one’s savings. Death of a beloved mate or a parent before his or her time is surely a grave loss. The death of a child is one of the most profound losses imaginable. Perhaps one may experience “merely” the loss of a relationship, the end of a love connection. But, as we all know, to some that is not a “mere” loss but a profound trauma. My expertise is in helping you through the grief process in as optimal a way as possible; to guide you in exploring avenues of hope so that you can move on and thus avert or lift the depression that often follows a serious loss.

Losing a loved one is a complicated experience that is not 'one size fits all'. Although there are different stages of grief, not everyone moves through the stages at the same pace, or in the same order, and having a safe and supportive place to start to process the loss is essential. My approach to working with people who have lost a loved one and are grieving focuses on understanding the uniqueness of the experience for the individual, and working together to process the variety of emotions and challenges that arise during bereavement. My approach is also person-centered and goes at the pace of the client.

A unique aspect of my psychotherapy practice is my readiness and willingness to discuss the issues of death and mortality. Life is precious and we deserve to live our lives fully, but death is an unavoidable fact of our lives. Many people can recall when they first learned about the fact of mortality in their childhood -- perhaps when a pet died, or we lost a grandparent or family member, or when some tragedy occurred. Witnessing a death or suffering the loss of a loved one can change some people's lives forever. In my practice I support my clients to come to terms with painful losses in their lives, and to regain their ability to live life fully, even in the face of their own mortality.

Grief is a main focus of my pracice and one in which many of my clients have experienced releif and a transformation. Grief is almost always manageable but requires time. How fast a person recovers from grief depends on many things such as mood, satisfaction in life, meaning and support. A person who is living a life that feels meaningful tends to recover from gief/loss sooner. A happy person recovers from grief sooner than a depressed person. Understanding the stages of grief loss helps guide a person through recovery. Focusing on mood and meaning are excellent ways to expedite the grieving process. In some cases grief/loss can be a wake up call to motivate a person to live well.
